The NYPD is looking for a gunman and his three accomplices who robbed a Richmond Hill delicatessen and another deli in Brooklyn during the same morning last month.

Police from the 102nd Precinct in Richmond Hill reported that three men entered the Metro Deli Grocery at 117-01 Hillside Ave. at around 1:25 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 23, when one of the men pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the 42-year-old man behind the counter. The other two men forcibly removed $5,800 from the victim. A woman was acting as a lookout outside the deli. Following the armed robbery, the four suspects fled on foot toward Jamaica Avenue. There were no injuries reported during the heist.

Investigators say the same three men knocked off the Bushwick Deli located at 18-56 Bushwick Ave. near Jamaica Avenue in the Broadway Junction section of Brooklyn, in the confines of the 83rd Precinct. The three suspects entered the deli at around 12:30 a.m. and one displayed a firearm and demanded cash from the 48-year-old man behind the counter, while the other two forcibly removed $200 in cash, police said.

On Tuesday, the NYPD released surveillance photos of the four suspects who remain at large and described them as having dark complexions. One of the men wore a black jacket while another wore a light-colored T-shirt over a black sweatshirt. The third man wore a blue head covering that hid his face and a blue sweatshirt with the letters AIX across the chest and blue jeans. The woman who stood lookout during the Richmond Hills heist wore a black jacket over a black hoodie.
